At White Point

COLD Ocean at White Point!

Just across the road from the campground is Hunts Point Beach. I walked over for some white sand views and wading. The water was warmer than expected; it’s a bay or harbor and not wide-open ocean at that point.

In Port Mouton, there is a building which has been in the Campbell family since it was built in 1783. It now houses the tiny Seascape Restaurant, where we shared “the best haddock and chips on the south shore.” Review: casual diner setting, good, friendly service and fresh, hot food. (That said, haddock is BORING.)

(Port Mouton was named when a sheep was lost overboard in 1604 when the area was visited by DeMonts and de Champlain.)

The main event of the day was visiting Kejimkujik National Park Seaside Adjunct (there is a bigger inland portion of the park). There’s about a mile and a half hike through bog and dunes to the ocean (one way). One offshore rock was covered in cormorants and another with harbor and gray seals lazing in the sun; several seals were romping in the water. There’s a small swimmable beach and a dozen children thought the water was warm enough.

We also strolled the boardwalks of Summerville Beach Provincial Park and visited White Point, a resort laid out along a kilometer of white sand beach. By this time, it was cloudy, down to 66 degrees, and rather windy, but it did not rain on the wedding that was scheduled with the ocean as a backdrop.

We had a quiet evening after a busy day.
